But there have also been a lot of ingredient Dino in events. A smart player would have been stocking up on them and will not need to create a Unique, just get part of the job done darting one.
Look at all the Rex folks have received from the daily missions and events. Ankylo is now the daily mission reward. Velociraptor has been in several events. Now we get Kentro, Ankylo, Erlik (2nd recent event with it) as well as their Unique. Every time you get 10 on a dart, saves a lot of ingredient Dino DNA. So they do not need to get 250 on the Unique to be able to create it.
I am happy for them to be able to get one on their teams but sad also. Those that had to work hard hunting and battling for incubators (or purchasing them) to create them get to watch folks have one basically handed to them now. Kind of like what happened to PoGo. We worked hard for our monsters to stack those level 10 gyms with. Heck, folks played for over a year and did not have a Lapras or Dragonite. Gym rework and raids killed all that effort and ruined the game for many of us, they handed them out like Halloween candy to everyone… So we left.
